About Penn Valley Church and Telford, PA

 

Penn Valley Church, founded in 1965, is part of the Charis Fellowship and comprised of approximately 250 disciples who are committed to the centrality of the gospel message in our lives and ministry. We are strategically placed to be a regional church planting center, and it is our desire to make a local and worldwide impact for Christ by training and releasing leaders, people, and resources to be on mission.

 

We are located in the Telford/Souderton, PA communities, which occupy both Bucks and Montgomery Counties in the northern Philadelphia suburbs. While originally a predominantly Mennonite farming region, this primarily residential suburb has grown to approximately 12,000 residents from increasingly diverse backgrounds. Our towns have a variety of restaurants, retail shops, and small businesses, and the downtown areas house walkable commercial districts.

 

Local organizations have several initiatives to create community involvement and connection. Penn Valley Church is active in these initiatives to serve and build outreach opportunities, often working alongside neighbor evangelical churches and faith-based nonprofits to seek the lost and serve the vulnerable.

 

We have a growing K-8 Christian school, with the majority of students attending from outside the congregation.
